The Barons are back on the ice at 11am our time to play Lake Erie. After last night’s 2-1 loss, we might expect Dan Ringwald to draw in for Martin Marincin or Brandon Davidson.
I have an article that will be up at Oilers Nation later this morning, basically saying that when you have rookie defensemen then you must have patience. That’s how I see last night’s game. Oilers forwards could have cashed several goals and the club would be talking about the kids overcoming a few errors, but it didn’t happen. That’s what a developmental league is all about.
I watched last night’s game and the usual suspects looked good plus newcomer Justin Schultz. I think the Barons need to add a veteran defenseman but it seems that’s what I say about every team the Oilers are involved in.
LINEUPS (10:53 VIA okc Barons)
Farjestad is in action today and Klefbom isn’t playing. I don’t think we should consider it a big deal, probably just making sure he’s completely healthy. Neftekhimik is also in action, it’s third period and Yak has an assist plus 3 shots and 14:39 so far in the game (just heading to OT).
